"We'll meet with whoever we need to meet with so we can formulate a safety plan, not just for inside the school, but in the situation in San Bernardino, that could've happened in the parking lot before and after school just as easily,” said SCCPSS Police Department Operations Director Capt. Ron Priest.
"I want to make sure that my son is going to come back to me the way I sent him off to school,” said Crystal Hill, mother of a Savannah-Chatham middle school student.
"We don't technically train the students, but we put the students through a functional exercise that the teachers have been trained to handle, to see how it responds. One good thing about a practical exercise is you learn things from that, what can we do better, what did we do wrong. We want to learn those through an exercise, we don't want to learn it through the real thing,” said Capt. Priest.
"It's definitely changed. Because I remember when we used to do all that, hurricane drills, tornado. Yeah, it's much different now,” Hill said.
